Elle Fanning in Prada at Twilight Premiere

Posted on November 13, 2012

Oh God. We do so love it when babystars are allowed to pick out their own clothes. Take every embarrassing thing you wore between the ages of twelve and seventeen to hang out at the mall, multiply the cost by a factor of about ten thousand, add 500  photographers, and you get babystars on the red carpet; a veritable parade of looks they will deny ever having worn when they’re in their thirties. This is why we do what we do, darlings; to provide a record of all those looks these little fledgling stars are going to disavow for the rest of their careers.

Elle, honey? That’s your cue.


Elle Fanning attend ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2′ World Premiere in head-to-toe Prada.

Prada Spring 2013 Collection/Model: Stina Rapp Wastenson

Prada Spring 2013 Collection

We shouldn’t point and laugh at little girls but – HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!

Oh, we can’t with that. It’s just too much.

      Was the dress-code “Heinous nude dresses”?

      • bitchybitchybitchy

        Can you imagine the phone calls before the premiere?  Elle, this is Kristen.I”m wearing a nude brassiere and my beige granny panties.  Can you wear something fug too?

    • gsk241

      Light she was and like a fairy,

      And her shoes were number nine

      Herring boxes, without topses,

      Sandals were for Clementine!

      • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

        Totally impressed.  (With your verse, not the dress.)

        • http://twitter.com/EBarney EBarney

          It’s a verse from “Oh My Darling Clementine”

          • gsk241

             I remember learning that song in elementary school, and haven’t thought of it since.  Until I saw this picture.

          • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

            Oh, I know that, I was just impressed that you called it up in this context. Americana Snaps!

         Perfect. Just hope she doesn’t “fall into the foaming brine”!

        I think I’m too young to get this…

      OMG. WTF are those platform flip flops?!?!?!?!

         I think even her feet look sad having to wear that er, thing.

    • http://twitter.com/NormDeplume720 Norm Deplume

      I do wish she’d stop dying her hair yellow. 

      Can’t even comment on the outfit. It’s just beyond words.

        Progress, people.

    • http://twitter.com/SuzBald Susan Baldwin

      It seems as though she can barely walk off the RC in her platform bow sproingy shoes.  

      • http://twitter.com/foodycatAlicia foodycatAlicia

         Sproingy is an excellent word.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Lucía-Gavello/1253586868 Lucía Gavello

          Imagine if they had actual springs! I would unreservedly LOVE that. These, on the other hand, look like a lot of work and very little fun.

          • http://profiles.google.com/j.allen27 Jennifer Allen

            There are shoes with spring heels. They are called Sprongs. They are terrible.

            • http://www.facebook.com/people/Lucía-Gavello/1253586868 Lucía Gavello

              I’m pretty sure Helena Bonham Carter has those, they are terrible and at the same time they make me love her even more.

       Where is her mother? I mean, she must have adult-supervision right?? Where are her best friends?? 

      • Tatiana Luján

        She isn’t being vulgar. I think parents should let their kids make some mistakes.

        • Sartorial_She

          I tell myself that every day when I let my 6 year old walk out the door in a non-vulgar–but otherwise hideous–concoction of an outfit.

          • jennifromcali

            But your daughter isn’t going on the red carpet to be photographed …she’s going to first grade.

      those look like homemade shoes

        Oh, I needed that laugh.  Thank you.

        • kimmeister

          Yes!  They were around for what, 15 minutes?

          • snarkykitten

             they must have come back with a vengence in the 90s because I remember bouncing all over my parents’ house in them until I chipped a tooth

         LOL.  Oh, Prada…..wtf?

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Mary-Stone/100001328135240 Mary Stone

      The dog ate my gym shorts, and I can’t find anything but my flip flops, OK?

    • MilaXX

      You know what? It’s silly and ridiculous, but I still love her for wearing it. it makes her looks like the kid she really is. While I adore Kiernan Shipka and her perfect little miss looks, I also like Elle for having access to fashion and having fun with it.

      • RebeccaKW

         I sort of agree.  It makes me laugh from the craziness of it, but on her, it’s more of a sweet crazy.  Where you think, ‘in a few years, she’ll figure it out, let her have fun now.’  If you saw this on Jennifer Aniston or even Ashley Greene, it would be horrifying crazy.

        • leftcoastpickle

          i wish I could photo shop well enough to make that Jennifer Aniston image happen.

      • http://twitter.com/starrika Ali

         Kiernan is fabulous, but I rather love Elle, because she seems to take such joy in dressing up.

        • MilaXX

          I’m not dissing Kiernan, there’s something very sweet and not artificial about her sweetness. It just that Elle’s teen wackiness and that mega watt smile she flashes, that I enjoy.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Lucía-Gavello/1253586868 Lucía Gavello

        I agree, besides, at this point you just KNOW she’s not only having fun but she’s also screwing with us a lil’ bit. I do wish she was wearing comfier shoes while doing it though.

        • MilaXX

          Not gonna lie, teenaged me would have been drawn to those shoes as well. In fact I like the shoes better than the outfit.

      • Nicholas

        Not even trying and failing is always worse than trying and failing at it.

        At least it makes her stand out—and it might be comfy to wear compared to the Medieval torture devices women normally subject their feet to.

      • http://twitter.com/nicey_nizzy nizea paqueo

        as a matter of fact, i prefer Elle’s wackiness to Kiernan’s perfect looks..her wackiness seems so normal, something a normal tween would do, albeit in really expensive clothes..

      • TieDye64

        Yes. As ugly as this may be at least she’s not flashing the goods at us. It’s goofy as hell, but it’s not vulgar.

    • Judy_J

      Those shoes are beyond hideous!  And they can’t be comfortable to walk in…look at how she’s having to look at her feet when she’s taking steps.  The dress is bad too, but not nearly as bad as those shoes.

    • jw_ny


    • PeaceBang

      But SOMEONE designed those shoes. So Miss Fanning is not to blame. I just can’t blame her. I blame the designer. 

      • NC_Meg

         I think I said the same thing when TLo posted the whole line a while ago. Someone designed them and no one in the design room said, “Aren’t these kind of hideous?”

      It’s okay, Elle. We’ve all been there. Don’t worry; the point and laugh comes from love and experience.

      For me, it was platform sneakers with extra-large flare jeans and black lipstick. 

    • SublimatedRage

      Where does her neck end and the dress begin?  They are fused together at the top!

    • Janet B

      Thank you Elle, now I know who would wear those shoes.


      • Mismarker

        And now I know who SHOULD wear them.  No one.

    • Jangle57

      Someone at Prada is laughing hysterically and saying to a co-worker, ‘oh my God, you win the bet, they will wear any shit we design as long as it says Prada.’

    • Kathy_Marlow

      Scroll down reaction: “WHAT THE HELL ARE THOSE???”

    • Jenni Kirk

      The shoes are awful, but I think the worst is the backless dress! She’s way too young and way too pale for a backless dress like that!

      • kimmeister

        I’m glad I’m not the only one who noticed that!

      • http://www.flickr.com/photos/21151157@N00/ rawrgrowlrawr

        I understand how she is too young for a backless dress, but how is she too pale? 

    • nannypoo

      Let’s all look on the bright side. She’s wearing makeup that is age-appropriate, only semi-shiny, and flattering. The dress, while hideous, is less bad than the shoes. She looks happy. And, best of all, we will apparently get to see a variety of views of the hostile middle aged blond woman all day. I’m in.

    • alyce1213

      Hahahahahahaha….. gasp.

      This is just beyond.  The one of her looking down at her feet is so great.  I’d pay ANYTHING to see a picture of her toppled over.
      Is that so wrong?

    • http://twitter.com/starrika Ali

      The front of the dress is cute (but not her color), but the back looks like a PR reject. The shoes are terrible, but we’ve all been there. I do like her makeup!

      Even when it’s a miss, I can’t help but like her. She’s so very 14.

    • KSpence

      Is there a fashion equivalent to contributing to the delinquency of minors? Miuccia needs a visit from the fashion police if there is.

    • http://www.facebook.com/cindyloohoo19 Cindy Bartlett Zigler

      Just because it’s Prada, doesn’t mean it’s good.  If the dress was in a colour, say something in a jewel tone to flatter her fair skin, I could almost, ALMOST overlook those nightmares called shoes on her feet!  But I can’t, so I won’t.  WTF is on her feet?? And no pedi?? 

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      None of that should exist.

    • B_C_J

      I feel very, very guilty critiquing a 14 year-old’s outfit. She is a child and she will make mistakes because she doesn’t have the requisite experience yet.  Let her have her fun.

      When I saw those Prada shoes on the runway,  I thought, “No way will anyone be caught dead wearing those on the red carpet.”  Looks like I didn’t factor the developing/often hideous taste of tween stars.  

    • Jennifer W

      Between her and Kstew, it’s like they got together and said, “Since it’s the last movie, let’s really mess with everyone and wear everything crazy to the premiere.” Holy hot mess, Batman. WTF?! And I love me some oddball shoes but no. Just no.

    • BrooklynBomber

      Wow!! That’s a two-gasper.
      One gasp when you scroll to the skirt.
      Another gasp for the shoes.

    • sarahmichelef

      The dress could be salvaged if it weren’t the same color as the rest of her.

      There is no excuse on earth for those shoes.

      I am personally offended by those shoes. They are like Frankenstein at the beach.

    • bertkeeter

      This is the type of CRAP design houses like PRADA, Mark Jacobs and Chanel send down the runway. ALL their income comes from accesories that “fashion victim lemings” purchase. I am convinced that they are just laughing at the editors /buyers that take this BS as real attempts at design! Take the $$$$ from the accesories away and they would be forced into chapter 13 overnight!

      I was kind of missing the platform trend from the 90s when I saw the Spice Girls at the Olympics this year, but if this is how Prada is trying to bring it back, I can go without. I certainly didn’t want it for the red carpet.  
      Man, even without the ankle-warmer, those shoes are fug. They’re not even good beach shoes because they’re freaking satin. No no no. 

    • http://asskickingadviser.com/ Ass Kicking Adviser

      Oh Elle darling you are way too young to pull off Prada. That is just the most ridiculous clown outfit I have ever seen. Those shoes (?) could only work with very chic, cigarette pants and that dress could only work with fierce hair and fiercer shoes. You’re in over your head little girl. 

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gabriella M

      Also, the dress looks like a high end hospital gown. 

    • kschwarting

      Yup, the outfit is ridic, but she’s just so cute!  I love her fresh face and apparent resistance to covering it with makeup.

    • LesYeuxHiboux

      She must have pissed off Dakota before she left the house that night. Sisters should tell you when you look like a smacked ass.

    • Qitkat

      This is what happens when a designer runs out of inspiration, goes to the bathroom, and in a flash of *brilliance*, thinks, oh, I know, I know, I’ll design a dress based on toilet paper hanging out of my grannie panties.

    • marilyn

      Aside from the horrific dress and the horrific shoes, she needs to touch up her roots.  It would be typical for a high school student to go around like this, and nobody would probably say anything at school.  However, she is out in the big world and trying to impress people with her fashion sense.  The roots are a big no-no. And she should tone down the blonde color. Her hair is almost chartreuse. Strangely enough, that can occur from swimming in a pool with chlorine. It will interact with light blonde hair and make it kind of green. If not that, she needs a more suble color.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      Those pictures look like she’s apologizing for her cracktastic outfit.  Now if only she would apologize for those roots.

    • decormaven

      Don’t even try to tell me these shoes are designer or avant garde. They are hideous and an abomination. And no pedicure? She is young, yes. But her stylist dressed & groomed her, and her PR flacks sent her out for publicity purposes. No one needs this kind of publicity. 

    • IMNAngryLiberal

      Okay, from an objective POV, this is all pretty hideous (bad Prada, bad), but if you can’t wear this batshit crazy stuff when you are Elle’s age, when can you?  I had a pair of tall platform sandals with a clear lucite platform with various “objects d’arte’  embedded in the lucite (they also laced up to my knees) when I was not much older than Elle — I loved wearing them just to see people’s reactions.  Besides, in a few years she will be much more embarassed that she went to see the Twilight movies than she will be at what she wore.

    • Imasewsure

      Thank you for making my day with the single ugliest shoes I have ever seen (and I lived through all of the 70’s footwear, Earth Shoes and Crocs so this is really saying something). Bless her crazy teenage heart….

      O no. That was a monsterific pic from the back too; she looks like a lumbering block of pale wood. I wonder if this dress would work
      as a smock over skinny pants or jeans.  The shoes need to be jetisoned into space.   Really a horrid little outfit.  So sorry.

    • GTrain

      The shoes…I wouldn’t want to wear them but I kind of love them.

    • jmorino08

      Jesus Mary and Joseph those shoes are Franken-awful!! The dress is kind of funky from a design stand point, but that color is just plain wrong!

      Hilarious!  Two-for-two on the Twilight red carpet so far.  They must be doing it on purpose, right?

      Awww…she looks like she’s having fun, which is what dressing yourself at 14 is all about.  And, look everyone!!!  She powdered her nose!!  I do think her makeup is perfect.

      I’m mad at Prada for conceiving of that outfit. Not everything with a fancy label is good. When will we learn?

      Hmmm.  Shiny satin cobbler apron over shiny satin not quite wraparound, with shoes apparently designed to be ugly.  Almost all in nude.  Hey Mother Fanning!  Collect these pix to show to prospective suitors.

      Thank heaven for little girls. Someone *else* must have been responsible for those heinous flatforms and I don’t mean Miuccia Prada.

      I like the apparel on her quite a but. The shoes are hideous of course but someone has to wear them.
